Have you ever known the pain and disappointment of a shattered dream, a hope deferred, a vision put on hold? Maybe you started out with a dream in your heart, but it got buried beneath the rubble of life’s challenges. Whatever it may be, life took some unexpected turns and threw you off-course. Dream Chasers follows the lives of nine ordinary people, who overcame great hardship in order to follow their God-Given dreams. In doing so, they became extraordinary. Through exclusive interviews with these leaders, Uta Schmidt uncovered that in chasing their dreams they do not avoid life’s disappointments and hardships. They endure suffering and experience crises of faith, but ultimately they find a way through. And we can all do the same on the way to our God-given dreams. Through their inspiring stories you will gain insights into the process of becoming who God called you to be, and you will grow in determination to follow your dreams straight through the fire of transformation.
“Every human being IS a story. Dream Chasers is an exploration of raw human experience; invitations to look through the eyes of another’s story and back at our own. Such self-reflection is essential to transformation, and there is no place safer than inside the holy ground of another person’s story.” William Paul Young
“Dream Chasers is a wonderful project that gets to the heart of the challenge of the Christian life: navigating through seasons of pain and contradiction by trusting God, who is always good.

I’m sure you will find hope and courage to follow through on your own journey as you pursue your destiny and fulfill your God-given dreams!” Bill Johnson
